In response to the coronavirus crisis, the Secretary of State and Attorney General are providing all NH voters the opportunity to register and vote in the state’s primary and the general election via absentee ballot. According to a memo from the Secretary of State and Attorney General’s office, “voters should not have to choose between their health and exercising their constitutional right to vote”. To help ensure NH voters can safely exercise their rights, concerns over potential exposure to coronavirus will now be included as part of the disability provision on absentee ballot forms, which can be downloaded directly from the NH Secretary of State’s website.
To complete the absentee ballot application, NH citizens will need to identify whether they are a new or currently registered voter, their reason for requesting an absentee ballot, and whether a ballot is requested for the state’s primary election, the general election, or both. Voters will also have to include their mailing address and contact information. Completed applications can be mailed, faxed or delivered to the clerk’s office.
You can check the status of your application by visiting the Absentee Ballot Search.
The due date for these applications is July 25th, so be sure to download and submit yours as soon as you can! This is such an important election, and we need every voice to be heard!
